Cafe with a conscience
The Cafe House opened in May 2015 at Vermont South Community House. It was opened as a social enterprise to give employment opportunities to people who might otherwise have found it difficult to enter the workforce.

The cafe looks out onto the children's playground of the Community House. Although this area is sometimes booked out for parties or for other groups, the remainder of the time people using the cafe are able to access the playground.

There is seating outside as well as inside and prices are very reasonable. There is a great coffee and cake deal for only $5. Not only is this a good price, you have the knowledge that your money is going towards a very worthwhile cause.

Open 9 -2.45pm Monday to Friday and 10 – 2pm Saturdays, The Cafe House provides a great selection of hot and cold beverages, cakes and light lunch items such as soup, sausage rolls, sandwiches etc.

The Vermont South Community House is one of 10 Community Houses in the City of Whitehorse. Each Community House provides classes and training opportunities for the local community. The focus is on being inclusive and supportive of all people in the community and this is reflected in the style of courses on offer.

Ideally located behind the Vermont South Shopping Centre and beside Livingstone Primary School and the Vermont South Library, The Cafe House is a perfect place to stop for some quick refreshment. If you are in the Vermont South area, consider doing yourself and the local community a favour and patronise this great initiative.
